J’adore Dior … and Travis Scott?
Last week we talked about Travis Scott hiding free Astroworld tickets in packs of his tough seltzer. Meanwhile, Scott moved on to bigger and better things.
The Bayou City rapper and producer has teamed up with Christian Dior and Creative Director Kim Jones for the luxury fashion brand’s 2021 men’s summer collection. Cactus Jack Dior (named after Scott’s record label), the line is the designer’s first full collection with a musician.
The 51-piece line, which is a shirt in homage to the late Smoke popping, who was killed earlier this year, contains many pictures of Texas / cacti; well-tailored jackets, pants and more; plus a certain streetwear-meets-couture vibe.
The line premiered last week during Paris Fashion Week in what appeared to be a mix of Scott’s Astroworld Fest 2021 poster and desert motifs, a throwback to Dior’s first collection in 1947.
Anyway … you remember last year when we were excited about Scott working together MC Donalds? What did we know then?
Another hot summer for girls
Megan Thee Stallion already had one good award seasonbut last weekend it got even better.
The Houston rapper went to the BET rewards last Sunday with seven nominations. She went on to win four (most of them all that evening): Best Hip Hop Artist; Best cooperation, for “WAP” with Cardi B; Viewer’s Choice Award for “Savage (Remix)” with Beyoncé; and Video of the Year (for “WAP”).
She definitely has another Hot Girl (award?) Summer. I mean did you even see her? breathtaking performance at the show?
Because we couldn’t resist …
Houston, we have another ranking report for you from WalletHub. The personal finance website regularly shares studies of the best cities in America for various superlatives, like the most diverse city (us of course).
This week saw it at the best city for the July 4th celebrations. Spoiler: It’s not Houston. We came in 24th place, which isn’t great considering we’re the fourth largest city in the US, but we at least have Austin (because who wants to find parking near Zilker Park?) And San. beaten Antonio.
To get these results, WalletHub looked at the 100 largest cities across the country for vacation fun and cost. This is how we behaved in some categories:
- First: Fireworks Legality (Not sure where to shoot fireworks? We have a guide.)
- First, proliferation of inexpensive 4.5-star restaurants (Houston is a foodie town in case you didn’t know it already.)
- Third, number of holiday festivals and performances (This should be obvious considering how great our celebs are.)
- Fourth: Lowest three-star hotel room rate (You can also book a Rockstar room at Hotel Zaza.)
- 56 .: Duration of a fireworks show (At least we have a lot of fireworks show options.)
- 59 .: Average beer and wine prices (Ehh, we’ll take our Saint Arnold anyway.)
